Ark has a ton of options. For new players this can be a headache. Thus we have provided 3 ways to manage different configuration options.

This is where server title, administration, map and authorization options will be present.

Advanced Config

As mentioned before ark has a ton of settings you can play arround to make your own experience unique.

In order to reduce the mental overhead we provide a way to search for the configuration options you want to quickly adjust.

Simply type in the setting name f.e. Harvest and results with similar names will show up.

You can also adjust mod settings if these are already defined in your configuration file.

File Config

You might want to view and adjust raw configuration options. Maybe a mod has additional configuration options via the ini file.

For those you can use the File settings section and just adjust all options as you see fit.

Remember: if you mess the settings up, it might break things
